WACO have announced their third album, ‘ROCK SPIRIT ABSOLUTE JOY’.
The full-length will arrive on 2nd September via Venn Records, preceded by new single ‘Barry Gibb Was My Landlord’ and followed by a UK tour that kicks off at London’s ‘Wacky Barber Shop’ on 3rd September.
Guitarist James Robinson explains: “‘Barry Gibb Was My Landlord’ is our ode to an icon. Barry isn’t just a great songwriter, he’s a pretty good landlord, too. When I lived in Manchester, he made sure the rent on the old Bee Gees childhood home was affordable for skint musicians. In a cruel, capitalist world that stifles any creativity it can’t commercialise, it’s hard for artists just to stay alive. Barry is one of the good guys. Cheers mate. We’ve put you on the guest list.”
